at this point, what outcome are you seeking?
the vehicle back?
yes I would like my car back
You may seek that relief in a few ways
I would begin with a written complaint to a manager for seller, and I would cc the department of consumer affairs and the attorney general office so they case is opened by those agencies and they may exert pressure. The letter should identify the precise narrative of what happened including the improper repossession.
You may also choose to have such a letter complaint come on lawyer letterhead to add additional pressure
such steps can be pursued before considering a civil lawsuit
would this be a drawn out process ? I have been renting a car and this is something I don't want to do .
It may resolve in a couple of weeks, but of course, can last much longer if they are being unreasonable
Having a lawyer involved can add necessary pressure to expedite it
but there are no guarantees.
I wish you the best.
Toyota is calling me in the morning tomorrow to let me know how much money they want from me to get the car back and I don't think this is fair
You may engage in the call and be ready to make demand of them then with a counter offer and warn that unless resolved to your satisfaction you will turn matter to counsel, and the agencies mentioned.
ok will do that .. if they are unreasonable do you think I should retain a lawyer ?
